The chicken spirit (Anonymous 222) accuses Mother Alice Samuel of causing the fits of the Throckmorton children and the household servants. it also alleged that if they were carried to Mother Samuel's home, or if Mother Samuel was brought to them, their fits would end. This proves true, though the fits resume the moment Mother Samuel is away from them. When this starts, Robert Throckmorton decides it is best to disperse his children, keeping one or two at home and sending the rest to stay with friends of the family.(34-35)

The Throckmorton sisters, separated for about a year and a half, are allegedly able to tell what each other is doing while in their fits. Their fits come less frequently while they are separated, most having about one a month, sometimes going six months without one. One sister is entirely free of them throughout the separation.(35-36)
